Riverview is a tree-lined oasis just minutes away from Chattanooga’s best dining, culture, schools, and shopping, and this stately home is perfectly positioned to take advantage of it all. Situated on a gently rolling homesite, the 1.3-acre property has entertaining areas both inside and out that will make gatherings a true pleasure.
Not one, but two living rooms allow guests plenty of space to spread out and appreciate the home’s gorgeous architecture, such as the eye-catching gas fireplaces. These areas are a blank canvas ready to be customized to show off the unique personality of the homeowners.
The formal dining room is yet another space for homeowners to make an impression. Here, tall windows let in ample natural light, complementing the room’s spacious proportions with opulent brass chandeliers. More intimate get-togethers can be conducted in the separate breakfast room around its charming fireplace.
In the heart of the home, an expansive eat-in kitchen is ideal for the chefs in the family. Thoughtful features like the double-stacked cabinets create more storage space, which means homeowners can always put their best foot forward. U-shaped counters and a generously sized island make party prep a breeze, while an additional butler’s kitchen nearby provides even more prep space for gatherings.
Available for party overflow are front and back patios featuring stunning stonework. Accessed through two sets of traditional French doors, the back patio in particular is ideally suited for al fresco dinners or summer barbecues.
Rounding out the floor plan are six bathrooms and four bedrooms, including the primary suite located on the main level. This suite comes complete with two massive closets and two spa-like bathrooms, so when an evening of entertaining comes to a close, homeowners can relax and unwind in luxury. The home’s lower level, which could double as a guest suite, includes a separate entrance, bedroom, study, laundry, and storage.
